evening, ed. thank you, my friend. >> you bet. >> and thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. the town of newtown, connecticut has three detectives on its police force. and on december 14th, when calls started coming in about a possible shooting at the elementary school at sandy hook in newtown, one of the town's three detectives, a detective named jason frank, was off duty. he was not at work. so presumably he did not have his uniform on. we know he did not have his weapon with him. but he heard the call anyway and he drove to the scene. he drove to the school. now, at that point police had already found the body of the shooter. the young man who had ended the massacre when he shot and killed himself. so at that point police were making sure that there wasn't a second shooter. making sure that the massacre was over. and they were moving through the school methodically, door by door, clearing each room, making sure there were no other perpetrators on the loose. and of course getting the surviving kids and staff members out of that school to safety. this was the time we learne
